7:05 am
>> this is turning more and more into a two-man race between donald trump and me. we are seeing the washington establishment in utter disarray because the american people are fed up with washington, they are fed up with being lied to. >> reporter: with cruz's climb in the polls has come increased excrete knee. this "the washington post" editorial cartoon depicting his children as holiday props this and this parody that features cruz and his children reading conservative christmas stories. >> i'll use my own and no one will be there. >> reporter: the candidate quickly denounced the cartoon demanding on twitter "the washington post" leave his children alone. stick with attacking me, he added his daughter are out of your league.

7:06 am
last night the cruz campaign were sending out fund-raising e-mails asking for emergency contributions. the subject line read "they attacked my children." >> major, thank you. nearly a third of americans this morning are in the path of potentially severe weather. a line of powerful storms is targeting the southern u.s. they are capable of producing tornadoes and damaging winds. storms have already hit southwest louisiana. one man there was hurt when his trailer was torn apart. >> meteorologist danielle niles of our boston station wbz is tracking those storms and the potential for record-breaking temperatures along the east coast. >> reporter: good morning to you. lots going on weather wise. we have got warm, moist air out of the gulf of mexico and cold, dry air behind it and along that battle zone, storms firing up right now. that threat will continue today. the greatest risk stretching back down to nashville and memphis and little rock in there as well. damaging wind gusts, along with tornadoes, are likely to develop
7:07 am
tonight. record highs, meanwhile, from texas stretching to maine up and down the eastern third of the nation for christmas eve, temperatures 30 degrees above the average. we should be in the upper 30s in boston and we will be 68 degrees tomorrow. 70s from new york city to philly. and 70s and 80s down across the southeast breaking records here as well and feeling more like spring than winter. >> danielle, thank you. iraqi forces are reporting progress in their battle to defeat isis fighters in the key city of ramadi. isis has been in control of ramadi west of baghdad since may. iraqi offensive is winning parts of the city amid fierce fighting. the army says it will regain control within days. michael morrell is a former cia deputy director and joins us now from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> what is the significance, do you think, of this setback for isis? >> norah, i think this is a very
7:08 am
on for two reasons. one is what is being attacked here, which is ramadi, it's the capital of anbar province, the home to the majority of sunnis in iraq. it's only 60 miles from baghdad. the loss was embarrassing to the iraqi government earlier in the year and on the main series to jordan and this is an important target. secondly, who is doing the attacking. most of the gains in iraq have been done by shia militia and the kued. in this case we have the iraqi military working with sunni tribesmen so the test here could be a molged for themodel for the rest of the country so this is very important. >> what does it say about the iraqi army? >> it says the iraqis and united states believes that they are able to conduct this kind of fight. i think the iraqis may be a little optimistic here that this will take only a few days.
7:09 am
being a little bit more cautious. we are talking about 300 isis fighters in a heavily contested downtown area. street-to-street fighting. this may take sometime. >> perception is, obviously, very obviously in all of this. how important is the perception that isis is losing? >> i think that is one of the most important things here. isis has had the perception for over a year now that they are winning and that gets them recruits, both in iraq and syria, and overseas. it gets them money. so to the extent that we can begin to turn back that perception and take the momentum away from them, that will be really important. this could be a first step in that. mosul, which is the second largest iraqi city is the ultimate prize here. that comes next after ramadi. >> mike morrell this morning, thank you. flags are flying at half-staff to honor a policeman killed in afghanistan. he is one of six members who died on monday.
7:10 am
was the deadliest on the forces in afghanistan this year. margaret brennan is at the pentagon as we learn more about the victims. >> reporter: good morning. it has been a brutal christmas week for the families of those six fallen american servicemen killed in afghanistan. we spoke to the brother of one of the victims who called his sister a true leader. air force target adrianna vorderbruggan was killed in monday's attack. >> she is a hero. and i hope she is a hero to awful us, not just to me. >> reporter: older brother christopher said his trail blazing sister was charged with protecting the largest u.s. military base in afghanistan. >> he intentionally would go on these patrols with her, men, because she wanted to show them that she would do what she was asking them to do.
7:11 am
first openly gay female air force officers killed in action. she had long championed the repeal of the military's don't ask don't tell policy, a change that now makes her wife and son eligible for military >> reporter: on his first in afghanistan joseph lemm returned home to his wife and children but trammic end this week. the veteran of the new york city police department was member of the air national guard and killed by a taliban suicide bomber who drove a motorcycle packed with explosives into an air force patrol. peter taub was also killed. his mother runs this washington restaurant, now closed so she can mourn this horrible loss. the three other airmen killed were michael cinco and chester mcbride and louis bonacasa.

7:13 am
immigration sfgs said malik underwent several background checks but did not raise any flags. aaa estimates for the first time a hundred million americans will travel 50 miles over christmas and new year's. most will drive but nearly 6 million will get on a plane and they may not have a chance to avoid controversial airport body scanners. officials tell cbs news the tsa is changing its passenger screening protocols. jeff pegues is at the national airport outside of washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. tsa officials stepped up security after the paris attacks and feel this is another important change and it means more passengers will likely be funneled through those body scanners whether they like it or not. cbs news has learned that late last week, the transportation security administration quietly changed body scanner protocols at airports.
7:14 am
wrote they were updating the ability of individual to opt out of ait, advanced imaging technology, screening, in favor of physical screening. that now clears the way for the tsa to direct mandatory body scanning. over the years, the technology has evolved. those body scanners that some critics label strip searches which officials believes lessens privacy concerns. airport security has been under the microscope over the summer as a scathing inspector general report released general -- in some cases, cruising through tsa pat-downs. it led to a security overhaul
7:15 am
talked about again just last week. >> in july, i gave the new administrator of tsa a ten-point plan for improving aviation security and airport screening domestically. that plan has been and is being implemented on schedule. >> reporter: those body scanners are extremely sensitive. the experts say they can pick up a handkerchief stuffed into your pocket which is why you have to take everything out of your pocket when you go through those body scanners. most importantly, the scanners can pick up nonmetallic explosives, the kinds that terrorists are trying to sneak on planes. a secret service this morning is investigating another embarrassing security lapse. this time a thief broke into an agent's car in broad daylight. the agent from the president's protective division parked near the white house on monday and when he got back to the car 45 minutes later a bag was missing
7:16 am
contained the agent's handgun, badge, i.d. card and radio and encrypted thumb drive. the secret service is not yet saying anything about the incident. a glimmer of hope for the survivors after a massive landslide buried a chinese industrial park three days ago. crews rescued a 19-year-old migrant worker this morning. he was buried for more than 60 hours. the state tv reports the man only suffered a broken hand and foot. some people were buried under possess feet 30 feet of debris and some are still missing. u.s. military is investigating what caused a mysterious light across the sky. people across three state spotted the fireball last night. u.s. strategic command said it was caused by russian space degree returning to earth. anna werner is here with the details of the celestial light
7:17 am
well, it wasn't a bird, a plane, it wasn't superman or even supergirl. no, it wasn't a meteor. but it could be seen for hundreds of miles. and appeared alarmingly close to those who got a glimpse. >> what is that? >> what is it? >> what is that? >> reporter: it was the midnight mystery, keeping people awake in parts of california, arizona, and nevada last night. a blazing bright light streaking across the sky. >> just all over facebook. really wonder what it is. >> reporter: local news stations were baffled. >> we have been getting all kind of phone calls. >> we are hearing reports of a bright fireball. >> but what is it? we still don't know. >> reporter: witnesses offered a variety of theories. >> could be an airplane. >> is that really long shooting star? >> might be a meteor. >> might be santa claus? >> reporter: others just watched in amazement. >> wow! >> liftoff. >> reporter: according to u.s. strategic command which helps
7:18 am
orbiting in space, the object was the remnant of a used russian rocket, one that may have helped launch a soy uz supply vehicle to dock this morning on the u.s. space station. >> every day hundreds of comets slam into the atmosphere but we are fortunate most of them are tracked and we can control to some extent what their characteristics will be once it comes back to earth. >> reporter: the russian rocket is one of 16,000 space objects tracked by the joint operations center which had predicted the spacecraft would fall over arizona tuesday evening. it's unclear for how long the joint operation center knew about the rocket re-entry, as well as where any of the debris may have landed. many thought that fireball was part of the earth's meteor shower which was also scheduled to appear last night.

widespread than many people think. the new york city department of consumer affairs revealed a sharp price gap between products aimed at women and girls versus men and boys. from toys to clothes and health care items the research shows an average cost difference of about 7%. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is with us. >> good morning. >> this is an alarming study. not only are women paid less but it appears we have to pay more for the products we want to buy. >> this study was interesting. what they were trying to do is differentiate between something that is pretty much the same product and something that is really different. if you have a cool shirt with lots of ruffles and that is marketed to women that is different than a straight-laced shirt for a man. they took all of these product categories and narrow it down and found pretty big different shals. >> specifically, let's talk about helmets and scooters. one helmet had a unicorn and one had a shark and how much more was the one with the unicorn? >> okay. so unicorn you have to spent,
7:35 am
are you ready? about 28 bucks. you want a shark? it's $15. now let's say -- all right, i know that both of your kids could like both things no matter what the gender is. but if your daughter really wants that unicorn, then you're going to pay almost twice as much, right? if your son wants it also. but i think the problem here is that we are really seeing these massive differentials essentially the same product. not in every category but in this specific category, it's the same with a helmet. >> we reached out to target about the findings here. scooters we are talking about there is a big price differential in. they blame a system error for that and other findings they say a difference in price can be related to production costs or other factors. does that make sense? >> maybe. and sure, i'm going to believe them there are certain products that cost more to make for a boy versus a girl. what i think about this is. i remember when i was a kid and they had bicycles and bicycles
7:36 am
you had the bar across for the boy and the girls didn't. i thought the boys bike was cooler, no doubt and that was cheaper. it's a funny thing to come back and see these differentials. >> specifically, when you talk about production costs, let's talk about the scooter. here is the red, boy scooter is $24.99 and pink scooter, virtually the same! it's $50! it's a color differential. >> target says this is a system, coding error. okay, let's take it a face value and maybe it was and maybe it wasn't. what is interesting here there is real interesting pieces about the law. in new york city, miami-dade county and as well as in california, there are some differences around the pricing of services. you can't differentiate around service. product, you can. that is a huge difference. be on the lookout. you know what? you know how to change this, ladies?

7:43 am
>> the fights, the riots, people getting killed. >> i think unemployment has a lot to do with it also, because whether you're black or white, if you can't find a job it's just going to lead to problems. >> we easily identify all of our problems but we don't provide each other with the proper solutions to overcome them. we are so quick to label, i got held down here or held down there. instead of, you know, putting our nose to the grindstone and saving money. >> we have to learn how to take responsibility of our own self. and don't -- you can break the curse. you don't have to be with your mother if she was a crack head and your father was a drunk. you can break the curse and become better and want better. >> by extension you have to extend that to the muslim community also and it's not about racism. it's about culture. it's about a culture where you speak up if you see something that is worrisome and is suspicious. >> a large percentage of the

8:07 am
the symptoms of what we call the common cold have been documented for thousands of years, but even with advances in medicine, creating a vaccine or cure is more complicated than you think. a runny nose, sneezing, coughing, headache and sore throat typically lead to a self-diagnosis of the common cold. and while the symptoms are annoyingly clear, the prevention and cures are not so obvious. about 200 different viruses cause the common cold. the viruses latch onto cells on the back of your throat and multiply, attacking your nose, throat and airways. >> the common cold doesn't kill anybody. >> reporter: dr. jeffrey linder says for now treating your body's reaction to the virus is your only defense. >> my three go-to things for the common cold are rest, fluids and then an analgesic and fever-reducing medicine like tylenol or ibuprofen tends to help the most. >> drug stores offer hundreds of medicines and remedies for the

8:09 am
the odds are your vaccine is not going to be doing a pretty good job of protecting you. >> for most of us, a cold is often more annoying than dangerous, but the elderly, children and those with weak immune systems or chronic lung disease can suffer serious consequences, even death from the cold. dr. foucci and his researchers are focusing on viruses that are more dangerous. >> we tend not to think about the cure of the cold, we think about taking individual viruses and determining whether it's feasible or possible to be able to develop a cure. >> finding a cure or vaccine for the many common cold viruses is not a top priority for the major pharmaceutical companies, so if you're suffering from a cold this holiday season, it's best rest and maybe eat some of grandma's chicken soup. >> it sounds like you have a little bit of a cold.
